    stein mold 575

    Marked 1/2L, on base is 575 with what looks to be a “4”? Underneath. Any help will be appreciated. Resembles Girmscheid 576 but a different shape and theme.
    Many thanks!

      Look at Girscheid mold 527 in The Beer Stein Library. It has the same scene that is on your stein. There is no mold 575 listed in the Girmscheid catalog, so it is most likely a Girmscheid stein, circa 1900.

      Hi Ron, Very interesting! I see the courting scene is the same, yes. Is there a reason why this mold # is nowhere to be found? I thank you for your expertise!

      The Beer Stein Library was a joint effort by stein collectors. The collectors send their photos to the person maintaining the catalogs. When steins don’t have a manufacturer’s mark, it is more difficult to identify the maker. Sometimes the handle or capacity mark can help narrow down the manufacturer. The type of stein such as ceramic, stoneware, salt glaze, etc. can help narrow the type of manufacturer. Catalogs are helpful too, but they may be rare and not in the hands of all collectors.
